That is a very good point. There may be tangible financial
losses I experience turning down ASP/C# contracts (cringe).
But the intangible benefits of working on systems that
never crash, never suffer virii/worms/adware/spyware
and that do what they are told when programmed in such and
such a way far outweight any perceived lost contracts.
When I get frustrated doing my computing, I only have myself
to blame, i.e. rushed/lazy coding practices, failure to
analyse properly, that sort of thing. From (long ago) memory,
when I was coding up apps on Winblows, I spent an inordinate
amount of time cussing and swearing at Mickeysoft, much to
the annoyance of my work comrades who retored with "Shutup,
grin and bear it! We have to put up with this shite as
My current project work is being done on Linux and OS X. It
is basic C stuff, and can be run on practically any platform.
A few sorry sods on our project have to use an SDK that only
runs on Win XP. I'll say little more than that I hear them
cussing and swearing at Mickeysoft ....
